Description:

On May 6, 1937 at 19:25, the German zeppelin LZ 129 Hindenburg caught fire and was utterly destroyed within a minute while attempting to dock with its mooring mast at Lakehurst Naval Air Station in New Jersey. Of the 97 people on board, 13 passengers and 22 crew-members were killed. One member of the ground crew also died, bringing the death toll to 36. The LZ-129 Hindenburg and her sister-ship LZ-130 Graf Zeppelin II were the two largest aircraft ever built. The Hindenburg was named after the President of Germany, Paul von Hindenburg. It was a brand-new, all-aluminium design: 245 m long (804 feet), 41 m in diameter (135 ft), containing 200,000 m³ (7,060,000 ft³) of gas in 16 bags or cells, with a useful lift of 112.1 metric tons force (1.099 MN), powered by four 1200 horsepower (890 kW) Mercedes Benz engines giving it a maximum speed of 135 km/h (84 mph). It could carry 72 passengers (50 transatlantic) and had a crew of 61.

Sound Bite and conversation:



Dieckmann, Edith

(former passenger, 1937) , speaking German:
-  "He could talk about it only in secret because in the Third Reich no one wanted to admit that they had committed such a capital mistake. So they insisted on the version that it was an attack. "

Dieckmann, Edith

(former passenger, 1937) , speaking German:
-  "When my husband was informed that the ship had burnt, he thought immediately that the reason must have been the new paint. "

Franz, Werner

(staff member of Hindenburg) , speaking German:
-  "I felt as if I had fallen into a dark hole. This feeling lasted a half year. When I saw a light sunbeam I immediately thought about the fire. When something crashed, I thought about the explosion and I started to run. "

Karns, Ed

(witness in the Zeppelin catastrophe) , speaking English:
-  "It was really terrible. I still don’t understand how some people could survive those flames. "

Franz, Werner

(staff member of Hindenburg) , speaking German:
-  "The first thing I realized was a loud explosion and the ship was shaken. "

Franz, Werner

(staff member of Hindenburg) , speaking German:
-  "During the dive I was inside. Then from about five meters high I jumped down under the ship and I ran to the other side. "

Bentele, Eugen

(Operator of Hindenburg) , speaking German:
-  "One could see that from the west a huge rainy front was coming – a huge black wall of clouds. That’s why we got an order to wait over the sea until the front had passed over us. "

Dieckmann, Edith

(former passenger, 1937) , speaking German:
-  "For those, who experienced it, it was like a dream. A flying First Class hotel, a five star hotel. Everybody who was on board agreed with this. Until it got dark, most of the passengers sat at the windows because there was just so much to see. "

Brandenstein-Zeppelin, Albrecht von

(great-grandson of earl Zeppelin) , speaking German:
-  "The Americans didn’t like this, so they decided not to support the Nazi propaganda campaign and not to deliver helium any more. This was a political decision. "

Brandenstein-Zeppelin, Albrecht von

(great-grandson of earl Zeppelin) , speaking German:
-  "During the balloon experiments the Kaiser said in Berlin: Among all South-Germans Earl Zeppelin is the dumbest.“ "

Brandenstein-Zeppelin, Albrecht von

(great-grandson of earl Zeppelin) , speaking German:
-  "The Nazis soon snatched zeppelin production as well and they commanded to use the ships as propaganda tools. "

Franz, Werner

(staff member of Hindenburg) , speaking German:
-  "„No one, neither staff members, nor passengers ever thought that something like that could happen. Flying by zeppelin was like sitting here in our room…“ "

Thomas, Verna

(witness in the Zeppelin catastrophe) , speaking English:
-  "„The explosion was very heavy. In five seconds the whole ship burst into flames. Five minutes later she was lying on the ground totally damaged and burned. It was horrible. The shouting, the whining, the stink – I will never ever forget it.“ "
